At the age of five, Kevin E. Raphael's son, Brian, was diagnosed as mentally retarded. Kevin and his wife, Kathy, refused to believe that Brian's future would be confined by the limitations of that phrase; they were determined to help Brian whatever the cost. What they didn't realize was how dramatic, frustrating, stressful, and lonely the next twenty-three years would be.

Another Brian's Song chronicles the Raphael family's journey through the challenges, heartbreaks, and miracles of living with a special-needs child. Kevin shares the tumultuous ups and downs of trying to find a the latest therapy, best psychiatrist, or miracle drug to help his son, and reveals how, despite their best intentions and years of trying, despair became a debilitating part of the family dynamic. Yet Kevin never gave up hope.

With gripping honesty, Kevin tells of the arguments, the tears, the laughter, the pain, and the sorrow that accompanied each day with Brian. In the end, Kevin realized that God carefully and purposefully placed Brian in his care.

An empathetic voice for parents and educators of special-needs children, Another Brian's Song speaks to and about the elegance, dignity, and will of the human spirit, the magical power of family, the importance of faith, and our collective desire to make things just a little bit better each day.
